DO YOU HAVE A BIG BUT?

Do you have a big but? I'm not talking about your backside. That would be your butt, and we won't go there. I'm asking if there's a but in your life that is keeping you from believing what God's telling you or what He's asking you to do. Abraham is viewed as the father of the Christian faith. In Genesis 15:5, God takes Abram outside to look at the stars and declares that his descendants will be as numerous, He took him outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars-- if indeed you can count them." Then [...]

This calls for war!

Have you seen the movie War Room yet? It released this past week and is doing quite well in the box office, ranking number 2 this weekend and bringing in an estimated $10.7M. It is proving, by it's own tagline, that prayer is a powerful weapon. As the fifth movie made by the Kendrick Brothers, War Room starred some recognizable faces in the faith community. Well known speaker, teacher, and writer, Beth Moore made a cameo appearance in the movie, while fellow speaker, teacher, writer, Priscilla Shrier, starred in the movie. When asked why she thought it was important to make a movie [...]

What can I do? I’m just one person.

Interstate 20 in Georgia Have you signed up to be a part of Circle Atlanta for Hope yet? I have been so blessed to see the number of people sharing the website information and challenging their friends to be a part of it. This is an event that everyone can be a part of, young and old. It is a way families can teach their children about the power of prayer. This is a way for the elderly to engage in the fight. As I was praying for the event this morning, I asked God to help people understand [...]

Got bread today?

Do you pray the Lord's prayer often? When I attended a denominational church it was part of our Sunday morning service. Now that I attend a nondenominational church we do not say it routinely, however, I love it. Whether spoken or sung, the words are soothing to my heart. Yesterday, at our prayer meeting we prayed through the Lord's prayer and my mind camped on one part of it for the day. Give us this day our daily bread." [Matthew 6:11] I've always understood that to mean more than just food, but rather give us what we need for the [...]

HELP! 911

Do you leave your cell phone turned on all night so you are accessible to people twenty-four hours a day? I do not. Due to the nature of my work with survivors of sex trafficking, I've learned I need to turn my ringer off at night if I wish to sleep. The girls don't intentionally call me late at night or in the wee hours of the morning; however, when I first meet them, they have their days and nights mixed up. They just pick up the phone and call or text when they have something to say. Most of [...]

Don’t Stop!

Sheldon Cooper Do you watch television? Mark and I have a few shows we watch, but by far the television is on more now that our kids are home from college. One program that seems popular with their generation is the Big Bang Theory. I'm not a huge fan of the over sexualized content of the show, but I do love watching the star character, Sheldon Cooper. One of the things he is most notoriously known for is the knock. [youtube]https://youtu.be/f85ViOmwbI0[/youtube] When Sheldon wants something, he is tenacious and unrelenting. The other characters know they might as well give in because he [...]

Do you have a tool I can borrow?

Do you have a tool chest? Is it full or are you continually adding new tools to it? My husband bought a Craftsman tool chest because he had outgrown his smaller toolbox and needed a place to store all of his tools together. We all have tools we use in life. Some of us have tools like a paint brush, a guitar pick, a computer or even a chef's knife. What kind of tools do you use in your line of work? Last night I hosted a new Bible study in my home. We are using the book The Circle Maker by Mark [...]

Still talking………..

Mama Do you have a friend or family member you talk with daily? Is there anyone you seem to have a running conversation with? My mom and I seem to have one conversation that has yet to end. We talk almost daily and we'll even refer back to something one of us said days prior as if we'd just mentioned it. We're so familiar with each other that we don't even have to convey complete sentences to communicate. She's not just my mom, she's one of the best friends I've ever had. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, Pray without ceasing." [...]

How to REALLY Keep that Colgate Grin

Do you go to the dentist regularly? As a young child my parents instilled the importance of taking care of our teeth and having regular dental check-ups. As incentive to brush our teeth every day and avoid sugar, my daddy told us we would earn $5 each time we came out of a check-up with no cavities. Obviously, that was a hundred years ago when $5 would purchase you more than a cup of coffee at Starbucks. In fact, when I would get that $5, I felt like the richest girl in the world. I mean, think of all the [...]

Do Your Part

Anything exciting happening in your world today? Any fun weekend plans? This afternoon I will pick my son up from college. He'll be home for a few weeks before taking off for a summer internship. During that time he'll try and catch up on sleep, connect with friends, and probably eat everything that isn't nailed down. He has grown into a very independent young man, very self sufficient. However he can become helpless pretty quickly asking me to do for him what he is fully capable of doing for himself... if I allow it. There are some things I will do [...]
